2015-08-08 #Hebron

Visiting the West bank 😎🙏😍 ‪#‎hebron‬
— with Hanna Maria Jensen and Joseph Zernik at Cave of the Patriarchs.
  • Joseph Zernik Contrary to news reports of tense situation, we felt perfectly safe... As soon as we arrived, an undercover Israeli security appeared, handgun bulging on his back under the shirt, communications equip attached to his ear... He was clearly not Palestinian - tall, blond, cropped hair. When I asked the Palestinian around, who he was, they jokingly answered: UN representative...
    But all UN personnel in Hebron (UN peace-keepers patrols in Hebron are routine for some 25 years)) are clearly identified by UN jackets...
